A test will be remembered for years and it is the one which Kusal Perera will not forget ever. His epic unbeaten 153* with a last wicket partnership of 78 with Vishwa Fernando guided Sri Lanka to victory from no where after they were reduced to 226/9 with 304 to get.

In the 2 match series, this also means that Sri Lanka cannot lose test series in South Africa now. Although Sri Lanka has a better chance to win a series in South Africa as many Asian teams cannot be able to do so.
